Melting in a pot of thieves wild card up my sleeve Thick heart of sins my own

They belong to me.

Horses album 1975

Horses è il primo album della cantautrice statunitense Patti Smith, pubblicato nel 1975 per l’etichetta discografica Arista Records. È tuttora considerato da molti critici musicali una vera e propria pietra miliare nella storia del rock. Attraverso l’introduzione di un nuovo linguaggio artistico e musicale, apre la strada al nascente movimento punk, ed è tra l’altro ricordato come fonte di ispirazione da numerosi artisti, tra cui Michael Stipe.

È stato inserito al 44esimo posto nella classifica 500 greatest albums of all time della rivista Rolling Stone.

The wall is high, the black barn,
The babe in my arms in her swaddling clothes
And I know soon that the sky will split
And the planets will shift,
Balls of jade will drop and existence will stop
Little sister, the sky is falling, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
Little sister, the fates are calling on you

Ah, here I stand again in this old ’lectric whirlwind,
The sea rushes up my knees like flame
And I feel like just some misplaced joan of arc
And the cause is you lookin’ up at me
Oh baby, I remember when you were born,
It was dawn and the storm settled in my belly
And I rolled in the grass and I spit out the gas
And I lit a match and the void went flash
And the sky split and the planets hit,
Balls of jade dropped and existence stopped, stopped, stop, stop
Little sister, the sky is falling, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
Little sister, the fates are calling on you

I was goin’ crazy, so crazy I knew I could break through with you,
So with one hand I rocked you and with one heart I reached for you
Ah, I knew your youth was for the takin’, fire on a mental plane,
So I ran through the fields as the bats with their baby vein faces
Burst from the barn and flames in a violent violet sky,
And I fell on my knees and pressed you against me
Your soul was like a network of spittle,
Like glass balls movin’ in like cold streams of logic,
And I prayed as the lightning attacked
That something will make it go crack, something will make it go crack,
Something will make it go crack, something will make it go crack

The palm trees fall into the sea,
It doesn’t matter much to me
As long as you’re safe, kimberly
And I can gaze deep
Into your starry eyes, baby, looking deep in your eyes, baby,
Looking deep in your eyes, baby, looking deep in your eyes, baby,
Into your starry eyes, oh

Oh, in your starry eyes, baby,
Looking deep in your eyes, baby, looking deep in your eyes, baby, oh

Oh, looking deep in your eyes, baby,
Into your starry eyes, baby, looking deep in your eyes, baby
